12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, cream-colored head of foam. It smelled of pine, roasted malt and toasted caramel. Sweet citrus, piney bitterness and roasted malt.

Pours a hazy orange that nears on murky/opaque. A white finger of head foams up on top and shows modest retention. Aroma is pine, resin, herbal, and floral hops in a syrupy mix. Biscuit and bready malts form a hearty backdrop. Flavor profile is a bite from the pine, resin, and herbal hops with bready and nutty biscuit malts behind giving it extra life. Hops carry a noticeable bitterness, with the malts doing little to smooth this out. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a modest velvety texture that actually feels pretty good. Overall, a run of the mill IPA with syrupy hops and a light bite.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz can.

Canned 05/18/2018, pours golden with one finger of beige colored head. Alright head retention & lacing

S: Some citrus & grassy notes

T: Tangerine, green melon, and grassyness up front, plus a littl dryness. Grapefruit peel, dryness, slight white grape & bready presence. Crisp finish, tangerine & pink grapefruit also on show

MF: Medium body, firm carbonation good balance

A pleasant IPA, I do like their draft products better & presume it would be the case with this one. Drinkable enough

Pours a clear amber color with a one-finger white head and medium lacing.

The smell is pine, floral, and a hint of citrus.

The taste follows with a nice pine flavor and a floral finish.

The mouthfeel is medium body with a lingering dry finish.

Overall, this is highly enjoyable. It's not hazy or a citrus bomb but really well done and underrated, IMHO.

I'm not an IPA lover, so take this with a grain of salt, but I thoroughly enjoy this beer. It's nice and light bodied, with a good bit of carbonation, but enough malt presence to give a slightly frothy head. The taste and smell are the key players though, it's citrus lemon and orange peel combined with the hops that remind me of a warm tropical day are intensely complex. I couldn't even come close to writing about all of the intricacies. Try this one on tap and close your eyes for the first sip.

-Poured from 64oz Growler into tulip style glass.
-Pours very pale, almost with a green tinge. Murky. 1 finger head that has decent retension and leaves a thin lace.
-Smells of citrus and slight pine, nothing really jumps out.
-Taste is underwhelming, bland. No distinguishable flavors really. Just bitter.
-Mouthfeel is lighter than I like an IPA to be. Personal preference.
-Overall it's just okay. Probably wouldn't try again.
